Meet & Greet with Kassie Zamora  

This month, we're catching up with Kassie Zamora, an Eagle-level player with The First Tee of Howard County who has been part of our program for the last six years, along with her two sisters, Karlie and Kara.

Q: What made you interested in joining The First Tee of Howard County?
A:  My younger sister, Karlie, wanted to try The First Tee so I decided to go along with her.

Q: Did playing with The First Tee motivate you to get involved with your school's golf team? 
A:  I joined the golf team at North County High School this year as a sophomore to play on the team with my sister. We were two of three girls on the golf team.

17th Annual Tournament Raises $30,000 

Thank you to all of our sponsors, players, volunteers, board members and tireless committee chairs, Nicola Morgal and Phil Bryan, who made our  17th Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, August 10 at Fairway Hills a great success, raising roughly $30,000 for our youth programs. 

Check out photos from the event on our  Facebook page and feel free to tag yourself! 




Important Registration Tip for Fall Session

Registration for our fall session is still open on our website. The session will kick off on September 5 and we're looking forward to seeing many new and familiar faces! 

This is the shortest break between sessions all year (five days/three business days).  As a result, our coaches will be working hard to finalize grades so that we  may progress participants who pass their evaluations and meet age requirements. 

Therefore, it is wise for parents whose participants will NOT meet age requirements
(Age 9 to Par, Age 11 to Birdie, Age 13 to Eagle, Age 14 or Freshman status to Ace)
to register for the current level as soon as possible, since we have only 15 days until 
classes resume, there is an intervening holiday, and we have class books to make up 
before classes begin.
